My first post on Open Salon was a declaration of indignation, in August of last year I explained my disgust related to emerging rampant Gocomics.com editorial Censorship.
As described at that time, those policies remain intact. Site management essentially removes anything they're in disagreement with based on arbitrary political criteria, as stated in that comment:
Several of we Liberal content "Contributors" are directly effected and resulting complaints are widespread, we're essentially being "Targeted" by those policy changes.
But policies at that site are worsening.
I've lately posted links to editorial cartoons on Gocomics only to find that site management has removed my content "commentary" several months later, they're apparently tracking my Current Postings and editing past site content Because I've referenced it.
So let's think about the "Memory Hole" mindset at work here.
Let's say I currently comment and reference an editorial cartoon done in July of last year as I've recently done on THIS site (http://home.assets.gocomics.com/jeffdanziger/2011/07/26).
Referenced a few days ago on Open Salon while commenting on this post:
Contained in that recent comment on OpenSalon I mention that "searching my user ID [M Kitt] will display my comments" related to that editorial content.
But recent review of that July 2011 Gocomics page shows that my comments of that date have been Selectively Deleted several months after posting them.
This means, of course, that I've been the subject of much Greater editorial ire at that site than I had previously been aware of, that I'm now the object of Such Intense political attention that even comments written several months previously are being essentially UNWRITTEN at the behest of Gocomics site management.
Setting aside the fact that Freedom of Speech is the foremost issue here, I STILL can't believe the concentrated, intensely destructive intent that drives those actions. I find it difficult to grasp the extent of intended willful (Personal!) animosity that would motivate such actions on behalf of Gocomics Management.
As stated in my first posting on this subject:
*What's actually occurred to effect policy at that site appears to be Entirely Politically Based and won't likely be subject to review by "We the Public". Based on the number of other Gocomics.com paid members who're complaining about those new "Policies", I don't expect any "Official", publicly available explanation as to why these new Censorship tactics are being enforced.*
But my simply calling attention to rampant Censorship at that site isn't nearly enough of a response, doesn't address the SCOPE of the problem involved. Malicious "Memory Hole" tactics at that site require further action on my part.
For starters, I'm going to post my comments from that Goccomics page (http://home.assets.gocomics.com/jeffdanziger/2011/07/26) here for review, so that readers make their own judgment, will be enlightened regarding Gocomics' politically motivated censorship.
This way they'll observe for themselves what constitutes "objectionable content" under Gocomics Management policies.
Thanks in advance for your valued attention, we contributors should all be concerned about the results of Anti-Liberal Bias at Gocomics. Or anywhere else, for that matter.
